About this book

The High Atlas mountains of North Africa offer some of the finest trekking and climbing in the world, with hospitable guides, a good climate for much of the year and an almost untouched mountaineering potential. Once you've experienced the contrasting landscapes, romantic cities and welcoming people of Morocco, it's easy to become hooked.

A narrative of the author's explorations over half a century, this is a guidebook like no other and could have been written by no one else. It describes some of the biggest and best mountain treks and climbs, routes long and short, difficult and easy, illustrated with pictures that show the rich culture of the Berber people. It is sure to be the inspiration for many fascinating Moroccan expeditions.
